I am trying to configure Wake-on-Lan on ProCurve Switch 2610.

I have 9 workstations connected to ProCurve Switch 2610. ProCurve Switch 2610 was just reset to factory defaults. All ports to which these workstations are connected are up. However I do not see mac-address of workstations connected to these ports.

I tried to run commands

conf t
IP directed-broadcast
int all
no lacp
write mem

Open in new window


but these do not help

I noticed that if I run command

show mac-address 2

Open in new window


I do not see any mac-address on the port despite port is up.

The learned MAC address entry will age out after 300 seconds. So unless the workstation has sent a packet within the last 5 minutes, there shouldn't be an entry in the table for that port.

Thank you for interesting knowledge.

I just connected simple d-link unmanaged switch to these workstations and WoL still do not work. Perhaps I need to look on settings on workstations themselves.

I connected Cisco Catalyst 2960 and WoL start working correctly again. For now I try to understand what's wrong with HP ProCurve configuration. All computers are on the same subnet.
